One of a popular series of arcade games involving a Japanese warrior and his faithful hound ported to the Genesis in order to boost the platform's slow sales. Impressive in their day, with neat 2D sidescrolling graphics. Animation is rather limited, but it's the wild gameplay that everybody remembers. The series gets better as it goes, but they're no match for the arcade originals.

Shinobi 3 - Return of the Master is fast-paced, challenging, and very playable.
